Selene is a moon goddess in Greek mythology.
Selene (as personification of the month and poetically sometimes also Μήνη Mene; with the Romans Luna), the goddess of the moon, after Hesiod daughter of Hyperion and Theia, sister of Helios and Eos, also called Phoibe, is later associated with the moon goddess Artemis (Diana among the Romans) or also identified with Persephone.
Oleksii Gnievyshev possesses a unique and particular painting style which blends classical realism with a modern touch. In a series of portrayals, Oleksii narrates tales from Greek mythology along with an interplay between human and animal nature. His pictures appear vivid and powerful: the animals embody a particular sentiment and the interaction between the characters tell a story. Influences from Asian culture can also be seen in Gnievyshev's works. The fascination with Japan does not only stem from general interest, but also from the historical and family background of the artist
